Princeton Garden Theatre
Professor of Visual Arts Su Friedrich introduces WE ARE THE BEST!, as part of the Prof Picks series presented by the Princeton Garden Theatre.
WE ARE THE BEST! is Lukas Moodysson’s adaptation of his wife Coco’s graphic novel about three young misfits growing up in early ‘80s Stockholm. Mohawk-sporting Klara and her best friend Bobo are 13-year-old rebels who, despite having no musical ability, put all their energy into forming an all-girl punk band. With tender affection for his young characters, Moodysson paints an ebullient portrait of youth.
Prof Picks is an ongoing series in which professors & educators from local universities and colleges select and present a film of their choosing as it relates to their field of study. After the screening, conversation is opened up to the audience to ask questions and discuss the experience with the presenters. Topics have ranged from sociology to psychology, from literature to computer science, and beyond. Prof Picks is the Garden Theatre’s way of connecting cinema, the Princeton community, and the prestigious institutions in this region.
